Overview

Book One of the Anniversary Day Saga

Four years ago, a bomb destroyed part of the dome protecting Armstrong, the largest city on the Moon. Now, as the city celebrates its survival with an event it calls Anniversary Day, a larger threat looms-one that begins with the murder of the mayor, and spreads across the Moon itself.

Even with every new technological device at her disposal, Moon Security Chief Noelle DeRicci can't stay ahead of the unfolding disaster. As the situation gets worse, Retrieval Artist Miles Flint hurries to his daughter's school to protect her. And Detective Bartholomew Nyquist finds himself in the middle of everything, from that first bombing to the Anniversary Day crisis itself.

A thriller with several mysteries at its core, Anniversary Day launches the Anniversary Day Saga, which will expand the Retrieval Artist Universe and change it forever.

Set in the not too distant future, the latest entry in Rusch's popular sf thriller series (The Disappeared; Duplicate Effort) combines fast-paced action, beautifully conflicted protagonists, and a distinctly "sf noir" feel to tell a complex and far-reaching mystery. VERDICT Compulsively readable with canny plot twists, this should appeal to series fans as well as action-suspense readers.

Anniversary Day is an edge-of-the-seat thriller that will keep you turning pages late into the night and it's also really good science fiction. What's not to like?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Four years after the bombing that destroyed part of the dome protecting the Moon's largest city, an Anniversary Day celebration brings more trouble. The fates of Det. Bartholomew Nyquist, a veteran of the original bombing; Moon Security Chief Noelle DeRicci, a dedicated professional despite her personal feelings for Nyquist; and Retrieval Artist Miles Flint, a specialist at recovering stolen items and people, team up as new violence threatens to destroy the Moon's fragile human habitat. Set in the not too distant future, the latest entry in Rusch's popular sf thriller series (The Disappeared; Duplicate Effort) combines fast-paced action, beautifully conflicted protagonists, and a distinctly "sf noir" feel to tell a complex and far-reaching mystery. VERDICT Compulsively readable with canny plot twists, this should appeal to series fans as well as action-suspense readers.
